Milan design week 2017 part two

After three weeks of travelling, I arrived home this morning after an amazing trip crossing 3 continents. Milan was definitely a highlight and the week finished with a fabulous day in Lake Como. Milan design week finished with a bang, and the second half of the week was filled with more incredible installations and projects. Below are some of my favourite moments from the biggest design fair in the world.
